A map of the future Knickerbocker Park, set to open in late 2011
Get ready for more fun in the great outdoors! Knickerbocker Park is on schedule to open at Providence in late 2011. The neighborhood park will include a splash pad, tot lots, a dog park area, multi use events field, youth baseball field, jogging path with exercise stations, picnic areas, and designated spaces for future amenities. The $2.2 million project will be located at the southeast corner of Shaumber Road and Dorrell Lane.
The Knickerbocker Park name was inspired by American literary and historical icons and further captures the spirit of Providence’s small town America theme. It was named after “Knickerbocker Tales,” literary great Washington Irving’s collection of stories from 19th century upstate New York that include “Rip Van Winkle,” “The Headless Horseman” and other favorites.
